    April 2016, our visit to this beautiful landmark in the heart of Rotterdam

    When planning our full day in Rotterdam, The Netherlands during our April 2016 visit we included the Euromast in our itinerary. We love architecture and have visited viewing platforms previously, so the Euromast was a must for us. We bought tickets online to avoid queues.

    After our lunch at FG Restaurant (Please see review) we walked to the Euromast. The structure reminded us about the KL Tower. They are around the same age.

    The Euromast was opened in 1960 for the Floriade.

    The last time it was renovated was in 2004 and two rooms were added, so now you can also sleep there in two dedicated suites. Something similar is offered at the Atomium in Brussels, but it's more geared towards school classes there.

    At the ticket counter our entrance confirmation was exchanged against tickets, which had to be scanned at the barrier to gain entry.

    We had to wait a little bit for the elevator to arrive. Some of the other visitors and we were whisked up to the viewing platform, which is at a height of 112 m. It mightn't be the highest, but it gives a very good bird's eye view over Rotterdam, the Hague and the surroundings.

    There was also a staircase to the next level. I wouldn't recommend it for vertigo sufferers. If you don't have any issues with heights, I would say it's a good idea to climb up, since you can see the gardens in the park below and other landmarks somewhat clearer.

    At the height of 100 m was the Brasserie and on the ground floor the Deli.

    Another option available for thrill seekers was abseiling.

    We spent around 45 minutes at the Euromast. We enjoyed our visit and would return again next time when in Rotterdam.

    Would we recommend this attraction to a friend? YES!
    Would we want to visit again this attraction in our future? YES!
